Isolation by Size of Epithelial Tumor Cells - a revolutionary diagnostic method

Competitive Advantages & Clinical Applications

Circulating tumor cells are detectable before metastasis :

The very high sensitivity and specificity of ISET allows permits its use for invasive cancers screening and as an alternative to biopsy.

Cytopathology can distinguish circulating non tumor epithelial cells from circulating tumor cells, thus ISET can detect CTCs and CTM after surgery and invasive treatments when a high number of circulating non tumor epithelial cells is released into the blood.

ISET enables the search for gene mutation in CTC and CTM as identified by the cytopathological analysis (ex: K-ras, HER2 etc..) for theranostics.
